Sharon Wolff & Kelli Hoffmann

Kelli Hoffmann was an outstanding Fine Art Director at Hunter-Wolff Gallery for three years.  She came to us with a fine arts degree and little experience in the gallery business but took to it like a duck takes to water.  Now she is on her way to a new Army post in Texas with her husband, Captain Adam Hoffmann.  Adam has completed a number of tours in the Middle East and moved his family more than ten times in 13 years. Kelli says this move is an especially difficult one because she loved living and raising her two small children in Colorado Springs but, “. . . this is what we signed up for.”  With a pretty smile on her face (and a slight quiver on her lip) she is doing what every dedicated military wife does when duty calls—moves on without a fuss. 

I will especially miss her and am grateful for all she has contributed to my business success these past three years.  Our customers loved her and the gallery artists appreciated her skills.  From the first time I met her, I knew she was an intelligent women with integrity, determination and strong work ethics. She never proved me wrong. As an employee, she always gave 100% and sensed my needs before I could even communicate them.  Kelli gave us so much without ever asking for much in return. She understood customer care and serviced every customer need with focus and desire to exceed expectations.  And, she did these things because that is who she is.  Adam and her children are lucky to have her.  We miss you already, Kelli!  I’ll always have a job for you should you return to Colorado and I wish you much happiness wherever you are with your family. We won’t forget you and hope you remember your “family” at the gallery.

If you have a story about Kelli and working with her at the gallery, please feel free to share it.
